I’m a bargain shopper so I looked at a lot of different study abroad options in Japan before selecting KCP. I was slightly worried because I literally could not find any bad comments about KCP anywhere online, and that made me suspicious. … But the truth is, KCP is simply the best! I have no complaints at all. For anyone seriously interested in learning Japanese, KCP is fast-paced but really fun. I totally recommend it!

—Laura Hicks

I enjoyed taking the conversation class because the instructors chose interesting topics that also translated well into real life situations. It didn’t feel like practice without a purpose.
